Informed Consent Form
Informed consent is required for most research projects. The researcher should confer with his or her faculty adviser to determine the appropriate consent form to use. A sample of the consent form(s) should be included with the application. The links below provide some sample consent forms, which should be edited so that they are specific to your research project.
